Is the version of the build environment used to test each release
recorded? If so, I can download that version of MinGW64.

The project uses libavcodec, and the functions
img_convert, avcodec_decocde_video and avcodec_decode_audio2.

I will look at the practicalities of upgrading to a later libavcodec.
